Fast food workers are also free to find a better job.

Truth is, their education, job skills and work ethic aren't worth the minimum wage they are already getting paid and they know it.

oh, they should get at least 12 dollars an hour. i dont think the fast food workers are appreciated. the owner of the local taco bell franchise never once came out and shook the hands of the workers and told them he appreciated the cheap labor, obama care, and a 15 dollar hour wage push will hang him by the balls. let the bastard run the drive up window himself. i see a for lease sign on the window.

The owner of the local Taco Bell shows them they are appreciated every time he cuts them a check. How much glory should be heaped on a bunch of dolts who flip burgers and pull fries out of the grease when the buzzer goes off? It's low skill work for kids to make a buck or for uneducated, unmotivated adults who refuse to make better for themselves. They are already paid much more than the fast food job they do is worth. If they want more money, it's time for THEM to do what it takes to make their skills and contribution more valuable so they qualify for a better job with higher pay...that's how it works.

The Strikers are just a bunch of poor assholes that want more money for doing less work. If you work at mcdonalds for over a year you have a ver sad life. I hope the owners of Mcdonalds BK Etc. just fire their lame asses. I can guarantee they'd go begging for their jobs back or move on and get a better job. It would be a win win for america because if they went begging for their jobs back it would show how bad america's employment is and if they get better jobs america gets better. Please do that okay fast food?
